I would go with either a GTX 670 or HD7970 and overclock the crap out of them;)

Also if you have enough $$$ buy a better monitor, 1080p min resolution:toast:

First, Thank you all for your advises :respect:

Random Murderer said :
"If you could tell us your graphics cards and/or list them in your system specs we'll be able to see what you're looking to upgrade from"

'course :

Asus Rampage Extreme III - i7 930 overclocked at 4Ghz (I've just tried 4,4Ghz yesterday and for the moment its stable) - Corsair TX 950 watt - 6 giga RAM
Resolution : 1600x900
Windows 7 - 64 bits Pro

I have expensive tastes : I hate when FPS <60 FPS :banghead:

I would like to have a super framerate in Crysis, a super average.

And I 'm wondering if I should'nt have to buy only 2 GTX 580 ... (apparently better thant SLI 670 with a little processor like mine), or 3 GTX 570...
That still doesn't tell us the model of graphics card(s) you have.
As far as 60fps goes, it shouldn't be too hard to achieve a smooth 60fps with a resolution of 1600x900. We really need to know what graphics card(s) you're using to be able to help you with your upgrade.

Ah. That would certainly explain it, lol.
A single GTX680/GTX670 or a HD7970/HD7950 would do great at the resolution you play at, and would also give you some headroom to upgrade your monitor to a higher resolution. Buying one of those cards would also give you the newest tech available, and you could always throw in a second(or third) card later down the line.
Crysis is going to be tough to max and get 60fps at any resolution, as it is an older game and a very poorly written one at that.

Sorry, when I think X79 I just automatically think 3930K.
